Standard setting

Description

Set performance standards on one or more test forms using the data driven direct consensus (3DC) method

Usage

standards_3dc(parms, design)

## S3 method for class 'sts_par'
coef(object, ...)

## S3 method for class 'sts_par'
plot(x, booklet_id = NULL, ...)

Arguments

parms

parameters object returned from fit_enorm

design

a data.frame with columns 'cluster_id', 'item_id' and optionally 'booklet_id'

object

an object containing parameters for the 3DC standard setting procedure

...

ignored Optionally you can include a column 'booklet_id' to specify multiple test forms for standard setting and/or columns 'cluster_nbr' and 'item_nbr' to specify ordering of clusters and items in the forms and application.

x

an object containing parameters for the 3DC standard setting procedure

booklet_id

which test form to plot

Details

The data driven direct consensus (3DC) method of standard setting was invented by Gunter Maris and described in Keuning et. al. (2017). To easily apply this procedure, we advise to use the free digital 3DC application. This application can be downloaded from the Cito website, see the 3DC application download page. If you want to apply the 3DC method using paper forms instead, you can use the function plot3DC to generate the forms from the 3DC database.

Although the 3DC method is used as explained in Keuning et. al., the method we use for computing the forms is a simple maximum likelihood scaling from an IRT model, described in Moe and Verhelst (2017)

Value

an object of type 'sts_par'

Examples


library(dplyr)
db = start_new_project(verbAggrRules, ":memory:")
            
add_booklet(db, verbAggrData, "agg")
add_item_properties(db, verbAggrProperties)

design = get_items(db) %>%
  rename(cluster_id='behavior')

f = fit_enorm(db)

sts_par = standards_3dc(f, design)

plot(sts_par)


# db_sts = standards_db(sts_par,'test.db',c('mildly aggressive','dangerously aggressive'))
